Many leaders assume that chronic stress is unavoidable, a price that we must pay in a global economy. Silent Leaders challenges this myth, exploring how we might use the relentless pace of our lives as motivation to find greater inner clarity and a deeper calm within. By so doing, we more consistently access creativity and innovation, hone our capacity for vision, increase emotional and intuitive intelligence, and deepen our character. We need leaders in every sector of our society who have the emotional courage and inner clarity to look unflinchingly at the reality of their own lives, and from this place examine the institutions that they serve, accessing a vision that rebalances and revitalizes, and that is sustainable over time.
